This was specifically supposed to be just an article on how to attend a convention on a budget. However, there is other advice and tips that go beyond budget and touch on the realm of survival. By survival I'm not necessarily talking about saving your life...I’m talking about saving your experience. It does not take much to make a potentially good con experience go south and turn it into a nightmare due to an illness, injury, or other mishap.
Sac-Anime is a semi-annual 3 day Anime convention in Sacramento, California which began in 2005 as an extension of the quarterly Sac-Con comic Convention. I attended Saturday at both Sac-Anime Summer 2010 and Winter 2011.
